A tender letter written by a young woman smack in the middle of the recent Paris terrorism.

It was just a friday night at a rock show. the atmosphere was so happy and everyone was dancing and smiling. and then when the men came through the front entrance and began the shooting, we naiively believed it was all part of the show. It wasn’t just a terrorist attack, it was a massacre. Dozens of people were shot right infront of me. Pools of blood filled the floor. Cries of grown men who held their girlfriends dead bodies pierced the small music venue. Futures demolished, families heartbroken. in an instant. Shocked and alone, I pretended to be dead for over an hour, lying among people who could see their loved ones motionless.. Holding my breath, trying to not move, not cry – not giving those men the fear they longed to see. I was incredibly lucky to survive. But so many didn’t. The people who had been there for the exact same reasons as I – to have a fun friday night were innocent. This world is cruel. And acts like this are suppose to highlight the depravity of humans and the images of those men circuling us like vultures will haunt me for the rest of my life. The way they meticoulsy aimed at shot people around the standing area i was in the centre of without any consideration for human life. It didn’t feel real. i expected any moment for someone to say it was just a nightmare. But being a survivor of this horror lets me able to shed light on the heroes. To the man who reassured me and put his life on line to try and cover my brain whilst i whimpered, to the couple whose last words of love kept me believing the good in the world, to the police who succeded in rescuing hundreds of people, to the complete strangers who picked me up from the road and consoled me during the 45 minutes I truly believed the boy i loved was dead, to the injured man who i had mistaken for him and then on my recognition that he was not Amaury, held me and told me everything was going to be fine despite being all alone and scared himself, to the woman who opened her doors to the survivors, to the friend who offered me shelter and went out to buy new clothes so i wouldnt have to wear this blood stained top, to all of you who have sent caring messages of support – you make me believe this world has the potential to be better. to never let this happen again. but most of this is to the 80 people who were murdered inside that venue, who weren’t as lucky, who didnt get to wake up today and to all the pain that their friends and families are going through. I am so sorry. There’s nothing that will fix the pain. I feel priviledged to be there for their last breaths. And truly beliving that I would join them, I promise that their last thoughts were not on the animals who caused all this. It was thinking of the people they loved. As i lay down in the blood of strangers and waiting for my bullet to end my mere 22 years, I envisioned every face that I have ever loved and whispered I love you. over and over again. reflecting on the highlights of my life. Wishing that those i love knew just how much, wishing that they knew that no matter what happened to me, to keep belieivng in the good in people. to not let those men win. Last night, the lives of many were forever changed and it is up to us to be better people. to live lives that the innocent victims of this tragedy dreamt about but sadly will now never be able to fulfil. RIP angels. You will never be forgotten.

To STAND with France is to HEAR France

To STAND with FRANCE is to HEAR France.

Hear their warnings to America not to accept Syrian refuge or any Muslim immigrants into our country. Most are young, healthy, strong men.

In the beginning of the Muslim immigration into France it was actually mothers and children.  Those mothers ended up being mothers to healthy, strong jihad youths.

In the beginning of the Muslim immigration into France it was actually mothers and children and those children grew into healthy, strong teens that hate France.

To STAND with FRANCE is to HEAR France

Hear their warnings NOT to continue down the politically correct road of appeasing Muslims.

Do NOT stop drawing pictures of Mohammed.

Read all you can by American Pamela Gellar and study how US government is against her for standing with France long before “STAND with France”.

Do NOT stop national traditions because it offends Muslims.

Do NOT make any Muslim holidays, national or school holidays under the guise ofreligious freedom.

To STAND with FRANCE is to HEAR France.

Hear they plea. Hear and heed their warnings. Hear their HOPE in AMERICAto stop this madness happening in Europe by leading the example and fighting it here in America.

Deport ALL non-citizen Muslims. Pure and simple.  Stop the “humanitarian” scam, allowing usurpation from within. Open your eyes!  If living in America for five, ten, twenty years without becoming a citizen, they are not FOR America.  They are AGAINST America!  




It takes BRAVERY to STAND WITH FRANCE beyod Facebook.


For France’s sake

For America’s sake

Be part of making America aware of the push by Washington, both Dems and Repubs and the president and his gang to bring more Syrian refugees here to America, to bring up to 250,000.

HEAR France tells us this is NOT a humanitarian issue.

HEAR France when they tell us the Lutheran, Catholic, Presbyterian, and other American charities have been slowly (for huge bucks) bringing “refugees” into our country for several years now and changed the face of rural areas. 

HEAR France. Then decide to REALLY STAND with France.

Ben Carson Gets His GOOT On

One thing I have always found perplexing is how Christians use literal as a technicality for qualifying something as honest. Quite frankly, I have observed this trait more pronounced among self-proclaimed “Godly” or braggarts of their faith. Let’s start with a couple of  basic examples to explain this “GOOT” phenomenon (Get Off On Technicality):

A child is told to not go in cookie jar and take a cookie. Mom bakes a batch and since the batch is big, leaves the top off and piles up the cookies above the rim. She later walks into the room and Little One denies going IN cookie jar even though has cookie in hand and will insist he did not disobey or do wrong in taking the cookie because it was on top of and not in the jar. The child understood Mom did not want him to help self to cookies but tries to get off on a technicality, on the literal. This is fine for a mind immature in logic, but for an adult? Is it not deception? Manipulative deception?

Another example: When I was young I told my mother she was acting like a beotch. Oh, how I tried to get of that one on the technicality, “I did not call you one; I just said you were acting like one.”

Ok. Got the picture? Now let’s talk Ben Carson. His largest support comes from Christians who’s only criteria for qualification for president is that he be a Christian (and the “most Christian” if more than one running) and they are standing by each of his GOOTs because he is a “Godly man” and he has successfully marketed his faith walk. His GOOTs?

For starters let’s look at the most recent debates. When asked about his involvement with Mannatech* he said what? Find it and listen to his answer. He said he had no involvement with the company. Next watch the videos below. Carson supporters should avoid the knee-jerk response, “I don’t need to watch the videos because it is just another attack on Christians.” These videos are of Carson talking (giving interviews and speeches) and NOT opinion hit pieces. These videos show Carson has his GOOT on and has many dancing the GOOT with him.

Watch the videos and then play in your head his insistence he was not associated with the company. Is he to be defended on a technicality; on the technicality that he never had a “compensated relationship” with Mannatech? Are you going to see his videos through the lens his handlers gave in the press release,

I don’t know that he’s ever had a compensated relationship with Mannatech,” says Armstrong Williams, Carson’s business manager, when asked about those appearances. “All we know is that the Washington Speaker’s Bureau, which booked hundreds of speaking engagements for him through the year, booked these engagements. He had no idea who these people are. They’re booked through the speakers’ bureau. The question should be asked to the Washington Speakers Bureau, when did they have a relationship with Mannatech, because Dr. Carson never had one.” (At Washington Speakers Bureau, Carson is listed as a level-6 speaker, meaning his fee is more than $40,000 per speech.) Williams adds that Carson won’t personally be answering any questions about his interactions with the company, “because that is the decision that has been made.”  (NationalReview)  

Let’s do some more Carson GOOT, shall we? The West Point Scholarship controversy. For years Carson has said he was offered a full scholarship to the institution. When he wrote about this in his book in the early 1990’s he understood then, by his own words, that WP did not offer scholarships and that is was training to be an officer in your enlistment that commenced after schooling complete (bold emphasis added).

I was offered a full scholarship to West Point,” Carson wrote in his 1990 memoir, “Gifted Hands.” “I didn’t refuse the scholarship outright, but I let them know that a military career wasn’t where I saw myself going. As overjoyed as I felt to be offered such a scholarship, I wasn’t really tempted. The scholarship would have obligated me to spend four years in military service after I finished college, precluding my chances to go on to medical school.” (Gifted Hands)

GOOT: Carson’s campaign spokesman said, it was proper to say Carson had an “offer” of a scholarship because military leaders had told him that his acceptance would be a sure thing. Says who?  Adults tell bright kids all the time they are great and should apply here or there but that does not equate to being offered a scholarship; not by a long shot.  But alas! GOOT works for those desperate to hang onto the image that Carson is an upright man and of course, he can’t be lying because God called him to run.  Run, Ben, Run!

He was told by the ROTC commander that he could have an appointment,” Watts said. “Dr. Carson rejected the offer, did not apply or pursue admission. Had he done so, and been accepted, that would have been tantamount to a scholarship, the same that all cadets receive.”

NO! It would not have been tantamount to a scholarship; only so under the logics of GOOT.

Sometimes GOOT is indirect, as in the way Carson supporters are GOOTIng with the original article at Politco that first started this all. Now the meme is Political retracts story on Carson’s scholarship and admits it was a hit piece. It is only “technically” true Politico retracted story.

Editor’s note: POLITICO stands by its reporting on this story, which has been updated to reflect Ben Carson’s on the record response. The original story and headline said that Carson’s campaign had admitted he”fabricated” a “full scholarship” from West Point, but now Carson denies that his campaign’s statement constituted such an admission, and the story and headline were changed to reflect that. POLITICO’s reporting established that Carson said he received a “full scholarship” from West Point, in writing and in public appearances over the years — but in fact he did not and there is actually no such thing as a “full scholarship” to the taxpayer-funded academy. And today in response to POLITICO he acknowledged for the first time that was not the case. Carson never explicitly wrote that he had applied for admission to West Point, although that was the clear implication of his claim to have received an offer of a “full scholarship,” a point that POLITICO’s initial report should have made clear.

Is that a cookie in Ben Carson’s hand? 

*Does it strike anyone as offensive or dare it be said, blasphemous, to call a product made by man as “Mannatech“?  Of course not flimflam man because Carson is a Godly man, a Christian, a Seventh Day Adventist, soft-spoken, ……….

About That Wall Working, Mr. Trump. . . .

A comment at CTH about those refugees (see all the women & children??? Not.)

BE GE says: September 16, 2015 at 4:21 pm

Trump may not be “nice” or even right with all of his agenda, but he is right in that fences DO work. This is from Hungary, which happens to be on the path of the horde of Islamics (some of whom are legit refugees fleeing war, I should admit):

The Hungarian military erected a few hundred km of the wall in a few weeks. The military “spetsnaz” and the migration-control law enforcement police force are patrolling the fence. It works:

At times, the “refugees” try to storm the tiny fence. The attempt is easily detected and the police and the military come in to apply generous amounts of cold water to cool down the heat of the storming masses

who are burning tires and at times attempt to throw stones at the Hungarian “siloviki”.

No lethal weapons. Everything fairly humane and convention-compliant. Just that there are no more hordes of illegals coming in (they are illegals de-jure, as the first EU/Schengen country they arrived was Greece and that is where they had to, as per the letter of the current laws, ask for asylum). The migration control police is even feeding the illegals:

Just not letting them in w/o any control (as we do at a rather large portion of our Mexican border).

Occupy Democrat on Facebook

Over 9000 comments and it is amazing how many let the media and the Demmies literally occupy their minds with rewriting of others’ words and ideas.  Over and over again, within the comments, the unoccupied repeat the argument is about ILLEGAL immigration and the the occupied minds just keep hearing what was never said.

Dear Veterans of the United States Armed Forces,

        I have three children and I was there for all of their births, there for first teeth coming in, there to see first steps taken, there to help teach them how to tie shoe laces, there for graduation ceremonies from the kindergarten. I’ve taken them to YMCA league basketball practice, and soccer, and dance, and whatever else they’ve been into.
         Though I’ve missed a few, I’ve been there to watch their games. Been there to blow runny noses, help them figure out how two minus three can result in a number that’s less actually than zero.
        With the exception of nights I’ve slept in a comfortable hotel room, I’ve sleep in a king-sized bed with the one I love every night for the past 19 1/2 years. I eat hot meals when I desire. I’ve never really volunteered to lay my life on the line for anyone, let alone perfect strangers. I’ve never pulled a 16-hour patrol shift, never climbed to the top of some sand hill in 115 degree heat wearing kevlar body armor, a 65-pound backpack and carrying a machine gun. I’ve never slept in a hole in the ground that I’d dug just hours before, or in the crawl-space beneath a Humvee. Continue reading

Remembering Captain Joe Kittinger

Remembering Joe Kittinger: C-O-M-E  A-N-D  G-E-T M-E
Felix Baumgartner made the news earlier this week with his jump through the sound barrier but don’t forget that he was trying to outdo what Captain Kittinger did over 50 years ago.
In 1960 Kitti
nger jumped from 102,800 feet and set the highest balloon ascent, highest parachute jump, longest drogue-fall (four minutes), and fastest speed by a human being through the atmosphere. Later he served three tours in Vietnam and spent a year as a North Vietnamese POW when he was shot down in 1972. And this week at age 84 he served as the capsule commander during Baumgartner’s jump. 

The advice from master to student over the past three years has been simple:                Be prepared. Know what to do and how to do it.”

Captain Kittinger, Thank you for your service.

A Personal Offer to Train Victimized Women of the Left

October 3, 2012

By Tiffiny Ruegner featured in TPNN

Today, another conservative woman brought the following video to my attention. When I first watched it, I was aghast to find this home video of a strange man impersonating a Republican stalking a nice woman in her own home. I say impersonating because you can obviously tell the man has too much artistic flair to be a Republican (FBWallflower disagrees on this one – Her Republican man is full of artistic flair.). Besides, liberals are the ones who want to control every aspect of a woman’s life. It was terrifying to watch her allow a man to follow her around and force her to do his will. I kept waiting for her to get her gun and then, I remembered: This is a liberal woman. She doesn’t have a gun.*Head shaking* It is seriously unfair that conservative women GOT IT and feminist victims just don’t.

IMPORTANT Message to liberal feminists in fear: If you do find a strange man under your bed, in your shower or in your closet, don’t allow them to stay. Let a conservative woman teach you how you can protect yourselves. Then, you will no longer need to invite BIG Government to come into your bedroom and take care of your “special” needs. Our 3-step program will give you all the personal power, firepower and man power you will ever need so you can break free of your institutional dependency on government forever! Continue reading
